Bob Gainey returns for his second season as senior advisor to hockey operations. Gainey re-joined the Stars last season after spending the previous seven years as a member of the Montreal Canadiens organization. Gainey was the Stars’ head coach from 1990-1996, and served as General Manager of the team from 1992-2002. Under his direction, Gainey led the Stars franchise to seven playoff berths, five consecutive division titles, two Stanley Cup Finals appearances and the 1999 Stanley Cup championship.

A native of Peterborough, Ontario, Gainey worked in the Montreal Canadiens organization from 2003-10, serving in a variety of capacities, including general manager. He served as the Habs’ interim head coach on two occasions and was most recently a special advisor to the general manager. In his time with the Canadiens, he helped lead the team to playoff berths in four of five seasons as GM, including the 2007-08 season when Montreal ended the regular season with the Eastern Conference’s best record.

A 1992 inductee into the Hockey Hall of Fame, Gainey won five Stanley Cups as a player, an NHL-record four Selke Trophies as the league’s best defensive forward, as well as the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 1978 Playoffs. In 1,160 career regular season NHL games, all with the Montreal Canadiens, Gainey amassed 239 goals and 262 assists for 501 points. He added 73 points (25 goals, 48 points) in 182 career Stanley Playoff contests.
